Given the relative harmony between mainline and Tea Party Republicans in the Texas electorate, why have fights between GOP lawmakers over legislative matters become so pitched?
Interesting piece on the possible need for a Democratic version of the tea party. Even as they publicly condemn Tea Party Republicans as hostage-taking legislative thugs, the truth is that some Democrats are quietly jealous of them. Think of it: The Tea Party gang gets to intimidate party leaders, threaten legislation, block nominees,shut down the government and default on the debit if they don't get their way. They cause major trouble. Boy does, that sound good. The extreme right has power, and that’s something the left hasn’t had much of for a long time. But in the aftermath of the party’s disastrous midterm performance, it’s very possible that the Democratic Party leadership will be facing its own Tea Party-style insurgency from the other side of the spectrum. “You’re going to get a fight within the Democratic Party. There is a substantial disagreement coming up,” Rep. Jerry Nadler, an outspoken Congressional Progressive Caucus member, recently told theWall Street Journal. The only questi ...
Congress has to pass a spending bill by Dec. 11 to avoid a shutdown, and some Republicans want to use it to defund Obama's immigration order. This morning House Speaker John Boehner pushed for funding the government through next September, but with shorter-term funding for the Department of Homeland Security (which will implement the immigration order) so Republicans can revisit it next year when they’ll run both houses of Congress. Boehner and McConnell say they don’t want a shutdown fight but they’re preserving a path to it, and the Tea Partiers who are the most powerful force in the party would like nothing better. The real showdown in 2015 won’t be between Congress and the White House but between the Tea Party Republicans and the GOP leadership.
Tea Party Republicans in Congress are threatening an economic shutdown if Congress wouldn't take action to prevent gun violence prevention.

Even considering Obama's dismal approval rating, it will be very difficult for the GOP to put a President in the White House in 2016. Why, you may ask? Because the Republican Party is a party divided. There has long been some minor divisions between social conservatives and fiscal conservatives, but now the GOP is divided into two distinct groups: Establishment Republicans and Tea Party Republicans. If a Tea Party Republican wins the nomination, many moderate and Establishment Republicans will likely either not vote or will vote for the Democrat candidate. If an Establishment Republican wins the nomination, most Tea Party Republicans will likely vote for a third party candidate, probably a Libertarian candidate. Democrats, on the other hand, will likely vote for their candidate, regardless of how far to the left (Elizabeth Warren) or middle (Hilary Clinton) they are. In other words, the Left will stay Left and the Right will spread out their vote or not vote at all. My feeling is that Independents will li ...

Here is a twist in american politics, sometimes history comes back to haunt the current wave of "extreme Tea Party Republicans": The Affordable Care Act, aka the Obama Care, ran a change in the US house and Senate in 2008, only to cause a angry American Public to change this "Do Nothing" Congress in 2014. "We the People" cant afford these type of politics to continue. Nor can "We the People" afford this FAR Right Wing, Tea Party escaped that blocks progress when it comes to true job growth, tax reform on the upper 1% that is keeping this Country from really growing, and supporting the fundamentals of a public education that everyone should have the opportunity to learn, and have a fair and decent education without road blocks or scrutiny of Political extremist.

I am finding this SO hard to believe even though I just read it in a study posted by Sandra, on Alternet/CJ Werleman; America remains a scientifically ignorant nation for two reasons: the resurgence of fundamentalist religion during the past 40 years, and secondly, the low level of science education in American elementary and secondary schools, as well as many tertiary colleges. While television ratings for Cosmos may have stunned media critics and your average fundamentalist, “Americans continue to poll more like Iranians or Nigerians than Europeans or Canadians on questions of evolution, scriptural inerrancy, the presence of angels and demons, and so forth.” This week, Gallup released a poll showing 42 percent of Americans still believe God created human beings in their present form less than 10,000 years ago.

GOP Establishment Declares All-Out War on the Tea Party If you had any doubts that the Republican Establishment was fighting a no-holds-barred civil war against grass-roots conservatives and the Tea Party, wonder no more. This weekend, House Speaker John Boehner reportedly will attend a $5,000-a-head Amelia Island, Fla., event. It’s sponsored by the anti-tea party group Republican Main Street Partnership and heavily funded by labor unions. Boehner’s No. 2 guy in the Republican House, Eric Cantor, will also be in attendance along with 25 other Republican Congressmen. If you wonder why GOP opposition to President Obama’s policies is so weak, look no further than the not-so-dynamic duo of Boehner and Cantor. Neither one of them would have gotten their positions of power if it wasn’t for the strong support of Tea Party Republicans in the 2010 midterm election. But they seem to have forgotten that and have a strong dislike for Tea Party supporters who helped them take the House. Ballot BoxSteve LaToure ...

Thank you for taking action on my petition calling on Congress to extend emergency unemployment benefits. As of Friday, 1.6 million Americans have lost unemployment insurance since emergency benefits expired on December 28. This is an outrage. Unemployment insurance helps our neighbors put food on the table and pay bills while they look for work. But instead of helping Americans find jobs by passing a bill, Tea Party Republicans would rather continue to see 72,000 Americans lose unemployment insurance each week. Now is the time to renew unemployment insurance, and I need your help. Join me in the fight to restore unemployment insurance for millions of struggling Americans. I’ll continue to push hard in Congress for action, but in the meantime, I’ve also been urging the President to take action that doesn’t need John Boehner. President Obama can sign an executive order to help the 2 million workers employed by the federal government who make below a livable wage. That’s more low wage workers than t ...

Chris Christie has woven in New Jersey is worthy of our most overused adjectives. Her investigative reporting and brilliant speculations have produced howls from the big guy, now greatly diminished. The presence of her mind and the degree of her empathy are never pushed down to pretend at Christie’s type of trite toughness. Though her depths of feeling may sometimes embarrass her, Maddow knows empathy is not a weakness; it underlies all civilized behavior. While Maddow, Chris Matthews, Lawrence O’Donnell, Steve Kornacki and Ari Melber have been sensational, their channelmates at MSNBC get mixed grades.

ALERT! Dangerous anti-immigrant bills proposed in Mississippi Legislature. HB 1322 by Rep Andy Gipson (R) of Braxton and SB 2655 by Sen. Michael Watson (R) of Pascagoula. These bills are another attempt by Tea Party Republicans to make life miserable for immigrants so they will leave the state. Please contact your representatives immediately and ask them to oppose these bills!

On January 9, 2014 the Tea Party Republicans renewed the WAR ON WOMEN. Please READ--ACT--SHARE-- The House Judiciary Committee debated legislation that could force survivors of sexual violence to tell their horrifying stories to...wait for it...Internal Revenue Service agents.1 That's because the bill sponsored by extremely anti-choice Representative Chris Smith (R-NJ) requires women who needed abortion care and are also survivors of sexual violence to prove to IRS auditors that the assault occurred.2 What?! As you read this, House Judiciary Committee members are considering the legislation. If we act now and collect enough signatures to show House leadership that this is not only offensive but also a huge waste of time, we can stop the legislation in its tracks--just like a grassroots outcry stopped efforts to redefine rape in 2011.3 If we speak out loudly now, we can send a message to politicians that bills like this won't win over women voters, and we can stop this outrageous law in its tracks. When wi ...
Virginia Democratic state Senate candidate Jennifer Wexton is taking to the airwaves comparing Tea Party Republicans to violent rapists. Another fine example of how the political system in American works. Say anything horrific or negative about other people to convince other to think the competition is the scum of the earth. These low class people need to be street sweepers after a horse parade.
The hidden racism for the past many years has emerged w a venous so to speak. But this is good because now we know who our enemies really are. " Enemies" u question and say that's a harsh label... but. my reply ...because that is the way Tea Party Republicans see us. Its called the Social Darwinism of the Western Euro Descendents of the USA., They are losing control and want to fight to keep it.
Thank you very much, Tea Party Republicans, Koch Bros., Grover Norquist, Carl Rove, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul … for this past year of standing up for the wealthy, helping out the banks and oil companies, trying to kill affordable health care, cutting food stamps, killing job creation, taking away voter's right, waging war on women, minorities, and everybody else who's not like you, and generally obstructing anything that would truly be good for our nation. Here's wishing you a happy new year and failure in you future acts of sedition.
From the Daily Beast: OUTRAGE Cohen: Race Comments Misunderstood There’s something to be said for defending your words despite the entire Internet being against you. The Washington Post’s Richard Cohen said Wednesday that “it’s a slander” to suggest that he does not support interracial marriage. In Cohen’s column about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Tuesday, he wrote that “people with conventional views must repress a gag reflex when considering the mayor-elect of New York—a white man married to a black woman and with two biracial children. (Should I mention that Bill de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, used to be a *** )” Cohen insisted the offending statements were describing how he believes Tea Party Republicans feel, not how he himself feels. “This is just below the belt,” he said of the criticism. “It’s a purposeful misreading of what I wrote.”

Candidate for Congress compares 'Duck Dynasty' star to Rosa Parks (Chicago Sun Times) WHAT?!? A Republican candidate for Congress is actually comparing civil rights icon Rosa Parks to a reality show star. And not only that -- comparing Parks to a man who claims African-Americans were perfectly happy BEFORE the Civil Rights movement. It's a jarring reminder of the ugly ignorance we're facing right now. Here's the bottom line: President Obama has 3 years left in office. We can't expect him to make real progress so long as these backwards-thinking Tea Party Republicans control Congress.

So, once again, I turn on Fox News and am graced by Bill O' and the venerable and portly, Carl Rove. They were busy lambasting those dastardly stubborn Tea Party Republicans who will not capitulate to the blue blood liberal RINO's over the latest budget bungle. The very next show highlighted the fact that the proposed budget would cut military pensions drastically. And who voted themselves raises this year. Congress. But they WILL vote to cut military pensions, something that was offered, promised and signed off on conscription into the service. Oh, stupid me! These are the best and brightest. Bill O Reilly and Carl Rove, fantastic.
Hi Randall, A new poll last week shows Ken Buck leading the pack of Tea Party Republicans vying to beat Mark in the U.S. Senate race. Take a look at this: A Senator Ken Buck would put the economy at risk to advance his own extreme political agenda. Please consider a $5 donation today to help make sure this doesn’t happen. It seems folks on the GOP’s right wing are quick to forgive and forget. Let’s review Buck’s resume of recklessness. He has: Supported privatizing Social Security. Called climate change "the greatest hoax that has been perpetrated." Told a prospective primary voter to choose him over his female opponent “because I do not wear high heels.” Later he said his opponent “questioned my manhood.” Compared homosexuality to alcoholism on Meet the Press and said he believes being *** is a choice. Lavished praise on Texas Senator Ted Cruz as “an example, too rare in Washington, of having some courage of your convictions” when Cruz was leading the shameful government shutdown. Ded ...
In November, just in time for Thanksgiving, stimulus funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) expired, leading to the most significant funding reduction since the Food Stamps Act was passed in 1964. With money tight at the end of the month, millions of families faced a choice between skipping Thanksgiving or finding a food kitchen to feed their kids. Unbelievably, Republicans want to slash food stamps again -- to the tune of $40 billion in catastrophic cuts that will ruin lives and destroy families. If Tea Party Republicans get their way in the current negotiations around the farm bill that governs SNAP’s funding, Thanksgiving 2014 will be extraordinarily worse. There isn't much time. We need your urgent support to fight back against Tea Party Republicans and the outrageous cuts they are pushing. Will you call your Congressman and ask him to pressure farm bill committee members, and make sure legislators hear the more than 4,000 food stamps stories that DFA members shared with us ...

ObamaCare* is NOT broken, Social Security is NOT broke or broken. Medicare is NOT Broken, Medicaid is NOT broken. Republican's G.W. Bush 'Medicare Prescription Drug Plan' or Part D is not broken. Tea Party Republicans have a Broken Party and they want to break everything that's good about America because they HATE Government. They love the Wealthy, Lobbyists, Mega Corporations, Wall Street, and Capitalists. 'The PP&ACA' or ObamaCare* is a Capitalist Program of 'The Heritage Foundation', a Right Wing Group, made popular by RomneyCare* in Massachusetts. The Right Wing only HATE it because President Obama passed it into Law, and They HATE Him. is NOT broken, it's working 90% of the time; and the only problems with the website are Right Wing Sabatoge Tactics that are mostly failing, just like the TP Republican Party.
When do Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, John Boehner and the rest of the Tea Party Republicans begin repaying the $24 Billion Dollars they cost taxpayers with the Government Shutdown? What interest rate are we charging them? - Todd W. Byars, Tallahassee, Florida 11-23-2013
Was watching The Daily Show last night and Jon Stewart made a interesting point, that I hadn't considered. He said (paraphrasing) the concept of the Tea Party Republicans is a contradiction. The Tea Party wants to dramatically reduce the influence the Government has in our lives. But to have the power to make changes, requires a Government that has enough power to accomplish this. They fight for the the very thing they want to eliminate. He went on to mention that the whole notion of Radical Extremism in the Republican Party was a strategic approach in trying to elicit a more vocal presence of Conservatives. In 2004 the Conservatives knew they were losing ground with a lot of moderate votes going to the Democrats and the Republican advisers essentially said, we can't win the Moderates, but we may be able to rally the vocal Extremists. This is when the rift appeared in the Conservatives who were leaning right and those who eventually became the Tea Party and Libertarians. All it actually accomplished was p ...

Tea Party Republicans recoil at the notion that Chris Christie is the party's savior.
Ted Cruz Talks Like McCarthy and Walks Like Mitt Romney The biggest downfall for Romney, despite his horrid campaign management, was his disconnection from reality. This was most evident when he refused to release his tax forms and the revelation that he was sheltering a majority of his money in tax havens. When election day came around, America overwhelmingly made their choice. They wanted a President they could relate to and felt would serve their best interest, over a CEO that would look for ways to screw over the population while benefiting himself. The (more than) 47% spoke. While Romney was busying losing, another Republican was up and coming. His name was Ted Cruz. Ted Cruz is a Tea Party Republican from Texas, and serves only one person — himself. This became obvious during his 21 hour filibLuster (get it?) over “ObamaCare,” even though it stopped nothing and did nothing but fluff himself up. Tea Party Republicans loved his grandstanding. This was the beginning of the end of the Repub ...

John Boehner says, “It’s easy to go out there and be Santa Claus and talk about all the things you want to give away, but at some point somebody has to pay the bill,” but he appears to have forgotten how George W. Bush did it. George just simply put all his expenditures on credit. And, on top of that, he gave the Top 1% Filthy Rich a huge tax cut, also on credit. It's no wonder that the Republicans loved George W. Bush. George believed in buying everything on credit. Do you remember how much the Tea Party Republicans complained? Neither do I ! ~Abel
Ted Cruz Talk Dominates Annual Democratic Dinner Tonight is the Iowa Democratic Party's annual Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner. Iowa is the site of the first in the nation presidential precinct caucuses. Sen. Chuck Schumer (NY), the third ranking Democrat, was the keynote speaker and endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. He said with Clinton at the top of ticket in 2016 “We can vanquish Ted Cruz and his Tea Party Republicans. . . The only good thing that came out of the shutdown debacle was the self-inflicted damage to the GOP. . . "Cruz is guaranteed to deliver the White House to Democrats. If the Tea Party continues its grip on the GOP, they will lose dramatically and we will have a Democratic House. Let’s all stick together and make sure Cruz is the GOP candidate." Schumer said that was necessary to pass union card check and a cap and trade national energy tax. With his endorsement, Schumer joins the 16 Senate Democratic women who have written to Clinton asking her to run. The gathering was also add ...
Romney donors back Democrat over shutdown-backing Tea Party Republicans in Georgia senate race |
After a colossal waste of 24 billion dollars with the shutdown; the war on the poor by eliminating food stamps, we can clearly see a personal animosity against Obama by the Party of God, the Tea Party. The Tea Party continues this war with no chance of success, squandering the tax payer’s money, with 8% of popular approval rate, intoxicated by a self-image of heroic resistance, headed by Ted Cruz and a few other Tea Party Republicans. The Tea Party ignores history. Stephanie Mencimer in says: “In 2006 both George W. Bush’s Medicare Part D program for seniors, and the Romneycare’s rollout was so bad that that a full two months after launch, only 18,000 of the state’s 300,000 eligible citizens had successfully navigated the enrollment process and signed up. Eventually the kinks got worked out,” and today 96 percent of Massachusetts residents have health insurance-more than in any other state. If Obamacare’s engineers can debug the system by early December, this rocky debut w .. ...
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) is not backing down about a flippant remark comparing Tea Party Republicans to the Ku Klux Klan into a fundraising message despite criticism from at least one opponent.
Republican candidate for President in 1964, Barry Goldwater looks liberal next to the Tea Party Republicans. In 1993 he wrote a now-famous commentary that appeared in The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times denouncing the banning of *** in the military. He would later support an Arizona initiative to legalize medical marijuana. The Republican Party never knew quite what to do with him. Goldwater said: "I'm frankly sick and tired of the political preachers across this country telling me as a citizen that if I want to be a moral person. I must believe in "A," "B," "C" and "D." Just who do they think they are? And from where do they presume to claim the right to dictate their moral beliefs to me? ... And I am even more angry as a legislator who must endure the threats of every religious group who thinks it has some God-granted right to control my vote on every roll call in the Senate. I am warning them today: I will fight them every stepof the way if they try to dictate their moral convictions to all . ...
Brit Hume gets it.  it is not about just Obamacare, nor Obama, nor just Liberals, but those that believe in Big Government.  Government is supposed to be afraid of us, we have lost our edge and it is time to take it back.   10/16/13 Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume explained on "Special Report With Bret Baier" Monday night why Tea Party Republicans originally started their confrontation with Democrats over the bid to defund ObamaCare.  He argued that they're taking an unconventional approach, because the mainstream GOP has "utterly failed" to stop the growth of government.  Hume said:  "Veteran political observers on both the left and right are still trying to figure out what the House Tea Party caucus and its Senate pied piper Ted Cruz were thinking when they insisted on using the threat of a government shutdown to defund ObamaCare.  "It was a hopeless strategy that has not only failed in its stated goal, but helped send the Republican Party to its lowest favorability ratings ever.  "I ...

President Obama, the man who has stomped on the Constitution in ways even George W. Bush could only marvel at, had the gall to tell Tea Party Republicans not to destroy the United States. And, he did so a day after he received the money he needs to implement his unconstitutional healthcare overhaul. Obama stated, “You don’t like a particular policy or a particular President? Then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election. Push to change it. But don’t break it. Don’t break what our predecessors spent over two centuries building. That’s not being faithful to what this country’s about.” The fact that he accused Tea Party Republicans – the very principled members of the House who actually stood up to his unconstitutional healthcare law – of trying to break what the Founding Fathers and others have built is mind-boggling. In less than five years in office, Obama has done more damage than any political leader in American history. If he thinks Tea Party Republicans are “breaki ...
better than observing a meeting of Tea Party Republicans.
I sent this email to Gretchen Carlson of Fox News: Your story on the Tea Party losing popularity is ludicrous. The Tea Party is not out to be popular. It is out to save the country. You can't save the country by capitulating to people who are out to destroy our freedoms and the integrity of the Constitution. It is not about over playing your hand. In fact, because of the non-Tea Party Republicans, the hand was underplayed because they (the RINOs) refused to make a firm stand to force the administration to negotiate. All the cards were held by the Republicans who are too afraid to take a stand because they agree with Obama. The Republicans in Name Only are nothing more than liberals and progressives who pretend to be conservatives because they could not get elected in the Democratic Party. They are stooges for Obama...especially McCain who lies as often as does Obama. They are what are called neocons who are liberals pretending to be conservatives. If you want to tell the "real story" dig deeper be ...
Here is another excerpt from The Daily Translator Shutdown/Debt Ceiling Lightning Round "I said yesterday that it seemed the newest Senate deal would likely be the winner that solved both the budget and the debt ceiling. Unsurprisingly, House Republicans declared that they would not pass this compromise, and instead were going to draft their own budget compromise that would address both the shutdown and the debt ceiling. At 10 a.m., Republicans in the House moved to schedule a vote on this new version of their deal. This bill delayed the Obamacare medical tax for two years; cancelled health insurances subsidies for members of Congress, their staffers, and the President cabinet; and extended an otherwise clean CR to January 15th + debt ceiling to February 7th. Not surprisingly, this bill was drafted by Tea Party Republicans. At 11:30 a.m., the President met with House Republican leadership to discuss their new bill. Apparently, the meeting did not go well. At 11:45 a.m., Harry Reid publicly announced that ...
John Boehner. Boehner, the Republican speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, could be about to confront the most critical decision of his three decades in politics. He could allow the House to pass a Senate deal that likely would get more support from Democrats than Republicans - a move that almost certainly would lead some conservatives to push for Boehner's removal as speaker - or he could side with rebellious Tea Party Republicans by preventing a vote and allowing America to default. "John Boehner is caught between a rock and a hard place," said Ford O'Connell, a Republican strategist. It's a familiar place for Boehner, who often has struggled to manage several dozen conservative Tea Party Republicans who have shown little interest in compromising with the Senate or Democratic President Barack Obama. Boehner's current plight is largely a result of his desire to placate the vocal Tea Party caucus and adhere to the "Hastert Rule," a tactic named after Republican Dennis Hastert, who was House speak ...

A little Andy Borowitz to lighten the day: Hostage-Takers Call Comparisons to Tea Party "Hurtful" By Andy Borowitz, The New Yorker 11 October 13 group representing America's hostage-takers today blasted President Obama for his repeated comparisons between them and the Tea Party Republicans, calling his remarks "degrading and hurtful." The complaint came from the National Alliance of Hostage-Takers and Blackmailers, a watchdog group that monitors negative images of extortionists in the media. "As professional hostage-takers, we never take hostages unless we have a well-thought-out plan, realistic demands, and a clear exit strategy," read the group's official statement. "Any comparison between what we do and these inane Tea Party antics are derogatory and unacceptable." The statement continued, "For years, our members have been subjected to offensive Hollywood stereotypes of hostage-takers as crazed madmen, cackling evildoers, and worse. The President's hurtful remarks only reinforce those negative images." ...

Obamacare Has Gotten More Popular Since The GOP Shut Down The Government To Defund It BY TARA CULP-RESSLER ON OCTOBER 11, 2013 AT 8:43 AM A faction of Tea Party Republicans led by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) essentially forced a government shutdown to pressure Democrats to delay or defund the health reform law. But that dramatic move hasn’t done anything to convince Americans that Obamacare is a policy they should oppose. According to a new poll, Obamacare is actually gaining in popularity at the same time as the Republican Party has taken extreme measures to take a stand against it.

Sad fact is Tea Party Republicans don't care about these cuts or the people hurt by them.

It isn't only that everyone is lying to Fox News - but also . that they admittedly believe that they know everything better than everyone else . and therefore everyone else has to be the liars - or they themselves are wrong. IE: Financial Experts warning of the 2008 Stock Market Crash were wrong. The economists presently warning about defaulting on the impending debt ceiling are wrong. The Census Bureau and Political Pollsters are definitely wrong. Romney won hugh ? Present scientific agreement on Global Climate Change is wrong. Georges Lemaitre and his predecessor Albert Einstein and all the successors since are wrong about The Big Bang Theory. Charles Darwins Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection is wrong too. U.S. Forefathers were wrong implementing Separation of Church and State into the Constitution. Roe verses Wade is wrong. Democratic President Obama is definitely - black wrong.

Lack of government--like the anarchists want, will in effect, take us back to when rats ran the meat market. Oh--that's right--I suppose the Mike Lee and Ted Cruz never read that book. It was that book shedding light on the meat industry decades ago that led to creation of the FDA--an agency that monitors the food industry to ensure that Americans can eat safe food.

Obama is already a hated man, Sen. Ted Cruz and Speaker John Boehner just screwed themselves and their whole party :) lol CBS found that 3 days into the government shutdown 44 percent of Americans felt that Republicans in Congress were at fault, with only 35 percent placing the blame on President Obama and congressional Democrats. The Fox News poll, conducted October 1 and 2, found that 25 percent of voters blame “Republican leaders such as John Boehner” for the shutdown, while 17 percent blame “Tea Party Republicans such as Ted Cruz.” With 24 percent blaming President Obama, and only 8 percent faulting “Democratic leaders such as Harry Reid.” In a show of force, 20 percent of those polled blamed everyone equally. On the basis of party lines, the poll showed 42 percent blaming the Republicans and 32 percent the Democrats.
